Peter Bright on the Surface Pro

The review is long, but is very much worth the read. His conclusions?

The Good

  • The screen is pretty
  • Touch Covers and Type Covers are still good typing solutions
  • The build quality remains first-rate
  • Runs Windows apps with aplomb

The Bad

  • Runs hot
  • Runs loud
  • Runs short
  • The whole resolution scaling situation is unsatisfactory
  • Metro-style apps still lacking in breadth, number, and quality

The Ugly

  • The design fundamentally doesn’t work

“Fundamentally doesn’t work”. Damn.
